It places Germany within the international order, offering an entirely new explanation for the instability and volatility of the Germans' perceptions of themselves and their country. "...thoughtful, incisive, disturbing, and wholly original analysis."--Independent. "...seminal...one of those rare books which direct our thinking into new and far-reaching paths."--Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung.

Book Description Book Condition: New. Following the collapse of communism in the East, Europe has faced the prospect of a unified, powerful, nationalistic Germany. In his provocative study of the German search for self-understanding, James offers an entirely new explanation for the instability and volatility of the Germans' perceptions of themselves and the role of their nation. It is difficult to convey the sheer verve, wit and brilliance which James brings to the exposition of this argument.
